BNurs, PGDipHSc

Nicola is one of our lovely Tend nurses.  After graduating with her nursing degree in Auckland, she has spent time gaining in experience in medicine and orthopaedics, as well as spending time in the Emergency Department in Rotorua.

When not working, you’ll find Nicola out exploring in the mountains, or running with my border collie. With a passion for the outdoors and adventure sports, she’s dabbled in endurance mountain biking, adventure racing and even ultramarathon running - that’s any footrace longer than the 42km’s!

Areas of interest

  • Orthopaedics

  • Children’s health

  • Wound care

I love getting to know people through nursing, it's something that makes a tangible difference to the way people experience and benefit from healthcare.
